1220 Tasting Notes
It finally thawed, yay! It’s so good, but it’s a touch bitter. Maybe I let it steep too long…I’ve never had any issues with cold steeping before, so this is a mark against it. Still, I love it. To the point that I’m kinda mad that I have to share it with the wife XD.
Maybe I should go the route of making some hot and then sticking it in the fridge, see what that does.
Welp, I went to strain my Grape Expectations and discovered that the leaves had frozen solid. Whoops. Should probably turn down my fridge.
SOOOOO I’m drinking my cool cucumber cold brew instead. This is so weirdly minty. It tastes like mint honeydew melon. It’s really lovely.
I don’t know, I may need to try more of this. Cold it’s amazing. I just…wow. I can imagine drinking this in the heat of summer and just loving how refreshing it is.
Maybe I’ll pick up a bigger bag.
Oh my gawd. I love this. I really do. I’m drinking it out of my new carry travel mug and it’s just love all around. It tastes like blue gummy sharks. I cold brewed it overnight and it is just….guh. Those of you who have had it hot and didn’t like it, I urge you to cold brew it or ice it. This is going on the staples list. Guh. It’s berries and deliciousness and perfection.
edit: I have some blueberry pancake booze that I NEED to try mixed with this beauty. Damn it, why is it only 10 in the morning?
We picked this up yesterday as part of our Spring Teas splurge. We came home with 2 Nordic Mugs (color changing whales and tentacles!), 26 grams of all the new teas except Pom Tango, a coco chai rooibos chocolate bar, and this little beauty.
Seriously, I’ve just been sitting and cuddling it. I love the texture of the outside, smooth and rubbery. I had already brought a tea with me in my timolino, so my wife got the free cup in this thermos and she keeps playing with the lid XD. I primarily use this and the timolino for my cold brew teas, because it keeps them ice cold for hours on end. It’s amazing.
I had been hoping for a pink timolino with the spring line, but no such luck. However, i spotted this burgundy carry travel mug and fell in love. Love, with a capital L and a sigh.
I like the mesh strainer on top much better than the strainer on the timolino, and the secret compartment is bigger. Not that I ever use it (except for spy notes!).
All in all, this was a great purchase.
This tea is so surprising. It tastes cool and refreshing in a way I didn’t think was possible from a black tea. I love the melon flavor and it’s very good. That said, I need to try it cold, but I probably won’t restock.
Edit: This was my first cup of tea in my new whales nordic mug. Ghost whaaaaaales….
While sitting outside Davids, chatting with the lovely Christina, I had a cup of this iced and oh my gawd. It was so good. So, so, so good. I see the comparison to a peach gummies, but ermagerd, I nearly walked back in the store and bought a ton of it. But we have samples, so I’m going to try it hot and coldbrewed before investing in more.
